Don't Look Under the Bed (1999 TV Movie)
Boogeyman: I hate to be the one to tell you but it's not too late for me to nail you.
Frances Bacon McCausland: So you just stay young forever like, Peter Pan?
Larry Houdini: Our friends grow up, and then we make new friends, friends keep you young, just like aerobics.
[does jumping jacks]
Larry Houdini: Tae-Bo, Tai Chi, all that good stuff.
Larry Houdini: Get in the bass drum, as a hiding place you can't beat it!
Frances Bacon McCausland: I'm not trying to hide, I'm chasing you.
Frances Bacon McCausland: Nobody knew who was responsible, but everybody needed someone to blame.
Larry Houdini: You know what? I think I liked you better as a boogey... peeerson!
Larry Houdini: I am Larry Houdini.
Frances Bacon McCausland: So I guess you were almost named after Harry Houdini? Houdini isn't even a real name.
Larry Houdini: I'm not a real person.
Frances Bacon McCausland: [Darwin doesn't acknowledge Larry's in the room as he asks Frances about her marbles] Do you see anybody else here?
Darwin McCausland: You don't have to be snotty about it, I don't even throw marbles!
Larry Houdini: Fran, just because you're getting older doesn't mean you have to get old.
Frances Bacon McCausland: [narrating] Middleberg is a middle-sized town in the middle of the country. Middleberg is where I live, and so does something... else. Some people said that Middleberg was dull, that nothing ever happened here. Well, they were very wrong.
Darwin McCausland: I guess it takes a lot of imagination to become a grown-up.
Frances Bacon McCausland: It sure does, kiddo.
Larry Houdini: [Frances has just gotten out of the shower and is wearing nothing but a bath robe, she is checking herself in the mirror, and Larry appears inside the mirror, talking to Frances] Ewww! Is that a zit? Girl, you need to take care of your skin!
Frances Bacon McCausland: [looks behind her but there's nothing there] Great. I'm still dreaming.
Larry Houdini: Over here!
Frances Bacon McCausland: [looks back towards the mirror] What are you doing in there?
Larry Houdini: [dancing in the mirror] This positive to reflect?
Frances Bacon McCausland: Get out! Get out, it's creepy!
Larry Houdini: [Larry steps out of the mirror]
Frances Bacon McCausland: [appalled] How long have you been in there?
Frances Bacon McCausland: [finds Larry in the garage] You're all right.
Larry Houdini: Just all right? And I thought I was great!
Frances Bacon McCausland: Well, when you fell off the roof last night, I thought you were...
Larry Houdini: [interrupts] "Get real, Frances" if I can quote your friend Joanne - well former friend, thanks to the Boogeyman.
Larry Houdini: Are you sure you didn't do anything to make him mad?
Frances Bacon McCausland: Hello, I think I'd remember if I'd done anything to the *Boogeyman*.
Larry Houdini: [starts heading back into the garage] Okay, Frances. Okay.
Frances Bacon McCausland: [to the school staff, who doesn't see Larry on the piano] Why can't you see him? He's playing the saxophone, he's moonwalking! Why are you pretending that you can't
[turns back and he's gone]
Frances Bacon McCausland: see him?
